Olympus LH-49 overview

  • 1Description

The LH-49 Sliding Lens Hood from Olympus is a round lens hood specifically developed for the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens. Lens hoods act to deflect stray light from entering the lens and producing glare. They also add a level of protection for the lens from accidental impact. This lens hood is special in that it has a sliding mechanism and can slide down to retract when not needed. This allows the lens hood to remain on the lens when not being utilized or when stored.

Deflects stray light and protects lens
Sliding mechanism slides lens hood down and out of the way when not in use or when lens is stored. Lens hood can remain permanently fixed to lens without becoming an obstacle.
Compatible with the M.ZUIKO Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens and designed for its focal length.

    Olympus LH-49 reviews

    LH-49 Sliding Lens Hood is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality piece of kit I was reluctant at first to splash out on this lens hood, and am still a bit disappointed with Olympus for not including hoods with their lenses. However, I am very pleased with this item. I had been using a third party 46mm hood that did a good job shading the front element of the lens, but I decided to fork out for the Olympus hood. It is a nicely built item and I really like the way it slides back over the lens for storage. I would give it five stars for functionality, performance and quality, but have opted for four stars simply because of the cost of it, and the fact that it is not included with the lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overpriced, but what can you do? This is a functional lens hood for the Olympus 60mm macro lens. It's WAY overpriced, but that's the fault of Olympus, not B&H. B&H had the best price I could find. Panasonic always inlcudes the lens hood with their lenses, but Olympus is infamous for not including a lens hood, thus making you pay outlandish prices for a piece of plastic that should have been included in the first place. But it's such an important accessory that I swallowed my pride and paid the extortive price ... what else can you do?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, elegant design and feel Not sure why the Olympus 60mm macro warranted such a trick hood, but it does work well and (up to this point) feels like it was well-designed. Not sure why they didn't do a simple reversible bayonet hood, but the LH-49 makes the 60mm feel a bit like Canon's 300 F4L/400 F5.6L lenses, with their slide-out hoods. The Olympus doesn't lock in place with a twist, but is otherwise quite similar.When retracted, the focus limit dial is still completely visible and useable, but the manual focus ring is completely covered. I do wish that the whole mount was about .5mm thinner - I thought I was going to be able to mount my screw-in LED ringlight with the hood in its retracted position, but there's just a bit too much contact between the back of the ringlight and the front surface of the bayonet mount on the hood.As with most Olympus hoods, this one is a bit pricey, and a part of me certainly wishes that they'd include the hoods with their lenses. On the other hand, they seem to be stressing a 'luxury' feel on most of their hoods these days, and probably feel that the 60mm Macro sells better a$, and anybody who really wants a hood will eventually buy this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens hood It is great lens hood that slides out of the way when not needed. The hood can be left on the lens all the time, extended when the lens is used for portraits, nature or landscape, and retracted for macro photography. It fits close to the lens so it takes very little extra space in the camera bag. The one drawback mentioned by others is the price, but I tend to use a lens hood almost all the time as a level of protection for the front element, I consider it worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hood works nice, but why is it extra The hood works very nicely, I like that it slides in and out, I wish all hoods worked that way. The construction makes it seem worth the high cost of a hood. Now, I'd just like to know why it isn't included with the lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart design - expensive but worth it The design of this hood is so practical. It slides out of the way when not in use without covering the focus limiting dial. It stays put and works very well in use. Like most of the other reviewers, I wish it had been included with the lens. Olympus just doesn't include bags or hoods so you have to pony up. I have been happy with it's performance and impressed with its design and functionality. Well made and thoughtfully engineered.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hood for Olympus 60mm macro lens Excellent design. Implementation is a bit flimsy. The only real problem is that the hood should be included with the lens by Olympus....not a high cost accessory.
    Date published: 2014-03-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice design for a lens hood It's a lens hood, so there's not a lot to say. This one has a neat design that allows it to slide back, and I don't think the knock-off brands do that. It's one of those things that may not be worth the expense, but once you have it, it's not something you really regret I guess. Still, would have been nice to include with the lens.
